    My wife was sentenced to 3 years imprisonment 3 months ago. Wow! What a blow that was. I never knew a thing about it as she was very secretive about the whole thing. Questions I ask myself is How did I not know what was going on? I knew her for 15 years. She got herself involved with online gambling which spiralled out of control. I just couldn’t get my head around it all, she hated gambling as always believed it was a total waste of money! For two years I was besides myself with worry for my little daughter who was only 4 at the time my wife got arrested. I until the day she got sentenced never knew the full amount of what it actually was.

    You shouldn’t blame yourself. Addicts can be very good at deception. That’s why sometimes they get away with it to the extent that they do.

    I find it helps to focus on the practical tbings first. Are you and your daughter doing ok financially? 😀
